Wylde Oake Artistry
Welcome to our website.
My name is Jane M Murdock and I am the creative half of Wylde Oake Artistry - the other half being my partner in life. I am a textile practitioner and artist working out of what could be described as a bijou home studio.
A lifelong love of art and stitch has recently led to the completion of a BA Honours in Textiles (final mark is nervously awaited) and the embarking on a Masters degree in Fine Art - both through through University for the Creative Arts.
Current themes explore issues surrounding body dysmorphia in the human figure, with a concentration on the female form, due to the pressures of social media and modern life. These themes have meshed together influences as varied as historic undergarments and research, the concept of the idealisation of the figure and the beauty of decay encompassing the ageing body, nature or dilapidated architecture
The resulting collaboration of the themes, techniques and influences enables me to produce work that is delicate, fragile, bold or strong with a concentration on form, colour and the play of light creating emotional responses and conversation.
